Streamstown Meet - 13th / 14th May 2017

Postby brianmacmahon » Wed Apr 19, 2017 6:52 pm

Hi gang,

It's that time of the year again, the first meet of the year Streamstown !

If Carlsberg did sea kayak meets this would be it.

This meet is open to all both ISKA members and guests.

If you have a preference regarding camping spots you'll need to contact Chris at http://www.actonsbeachsidecamping.com. Other then that it'll be first come first serve.

Sea kayakers of all levels will be catered for both on and off the water. Peter and Dave will of course be providing culinary delights Saturday evening. Both meat eaters (real men and women) and vegetarians will be catered for. As usual all gratuities will be gratefully accepted and all monies raised will go to the RNLI.

There will be led trips on the Saturday. Weather and numbers will decide where those trips will go to. We will endeavour to get a concensus regarding that on the day. There will be a trip for those getting back into the swing after winter hibernation and a more advanced trip for those willing to stretch out. Leaders and assistants will be coerced on the day depending on who turns up.

Be aware this meet is peer all the way. We will as always look out for each other and the designated leaders will call the shots as they see fit.

Everyone paddling on the day will be obliged to sign in and to give an ICE (in case of emergency) contact number. This applies to all both ISKA members and guests. Other then that happy paddling.

Please God the weather will corporate.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Hi Folks,

I've just joined the ISKA and am hoping to attend the Streamstown meet as my first one.

Is there anything I need to do prior to the weekend, register interest with anyone, book the campsite etc or can I just turn up at the site on Friday?

Is there anything that would be handy to know for my first meet?

Thanks,

Chris Jefferies

Hi Chris ,

Your very welcome to ISKA.

Streamstown is a very relaxed affair. There is no requirement to prebook unless there is a particular spot on the campsite that you've earmarked for yourself. In which case just phone your namesake at Actons and he will reserve it for you. Other then that people just pick their spots on arrival be it Friday or Saturday.

We normally gather our wits on Saturday morning around 1000hrs for a briefing at the Tepee tent.
There are two leaders Alan and Cieran.
Alan's looking after the beginners paddle and Cieran will cover the more advanced.
Depending on numbers and experience the paddlers are grouped up and the leaders subsequently decide what the planned route will be.

There is a lot of flexibility built into this arrangement to allow for weather etc.
Just bring yourself and your gear and enjoy the food and the experience.
